  • 803 - “The Long Night”

    I'm sure I'm not the only one - but it feels like everything after this episode is going to be a bit of a letdown. As Jim mentioned in the podcast, THIS was the battle that actually mattered to 99.9% of Westeros, not one with Circe. EVERYONE had an interest in defeating the Night King, which is going to make every battle after that seem kinda petty. Besides Dany and Jon - who in their right mind is going to want to march south now for another fight? What a disappointing death it would be to survive the craziest zombie battle in 1000 years, only to get smoked by some Golden Company rando to settle a (at this point) seemingly-frivolous dispute over a sword chair - the stakes are just so much lower? This show has shrunk a story that everyone in Westeros cares about to a story that no one in Westeros cares about.  Don't get me wrong, I want to see how Circe's story ends up too, I just feel like they put the wrong story-line ending first...

    Hey guys! I thought I heard early December on this, but my apologies if there's been an update and I missed it. Is there a forum thread to start asking questions (if not, can I start)? I have an advice question and 2 short etiquette questions.

    I'm travelling on business with a co-worker in a few weeks. We're friendly, but not necessarily friends (he indirectly reports to me). Is there any obligation to 'hang out' or take meals together outside of working hours, either with him or with co-workers at the other site? I'm a bit of an introvert and would be happy crashing back at the hotel room by myself and getting room service after a hard day's work, but I don't want to give the impression I don't want to socialize with coworkers (particularly ones who work at a different site and whom I wouldn't get other opportunities to interact with in person)? I'm a back office support guy (not sales), so it's not imperative that I build business relationships this way, on the other hand I don't want to come off as uninterested or disconnected. Any advice?

    I have 2 public bathroom etiquette questions: 1. Is it appropriate to 'bless' a stranger in an adjacent stall of a public restroom who sneezes?  It's flu and cold season here in Boston and I've been 'blessed' twice this way this week. It feels both polite and awkward at the same time. Should I be doing this? Should I be saying thank you, or should I just ignore and pretend nothing happened?

    2. When, if ever, is it appropriate to use a handicapped stall if you're not handicapped? I work in a department with no one who would legitimately use it (and we're unlikely to have visitor/clients who would). Is it never to be used then? I don't want to use it and have people think I'm insensitive, but I don't want to stand around waiting if all the other stalls are full and there's a perfectly good stall ready?

  • We Need Your Help -- Video

    $5 a month is still a great value, I pay more to NPR and listen less. I began as a GoT listener and started The Walking Dead earlier this year *for the sole purpose of being able to listen to you guys on the podcast after each episode*.

    Bald Move is to quality, thoughtful and hilarious entertainment as barley is to intellect. Additionally, as a guy who sits in an office all day with no real passion for the job, I'm rooting for you guys who had the guts to go all in on this. I'm signed up at the new rate and should be able to throw a little extra cash your way in December.

    Oh and your Goonies podcast was awesome.
